Gina Kirschenheiter Unveils What You Didn't See From the RHOC Lake Arrowhead Trip

"THE STRUGGLE IS REAL" for the RHOC cast member in this previously unseen moment.

By Laura Rosenfeld

Gina Kirschenheiter and the great outdoors don't always get along. You needn't look any further than The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies' trips to Jamaica and Florida in Season 13 and Season 14, respectively, for proof of that.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

The RHOC girls' getaway to Lake Arrowhead, California in the current Season 15 was no different for Gina as she joined in on activities like kayaking and mountain biking (clip above). She even discovered a swarm of flies in her room at the house where the RHOC crew was staying.

But Gina wasn't going to go down without a fight. In a previously unseen moment from the Lake Arrowhead vacation shared by the OC Housewife on Instagram on December 31, Gina can be seen sitting on a paddleboard operated by Braunwyn Windham-Burke. "THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!" Gina wrote in the post. "Little behind the scenes footage of as @elizabethlynvargas describes it, me conquering my fears except clearly not."

Emily Simpson, who was not able to attend the trip after she and husband Shane Simpson tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), wrote in the comments section of Gina's post, "I’m so bummed I missed this!" Gina replied, "LOL you would have made fun of me so hard."

Even though it sounds like Gina wasn't so satisfied with her progress in overcoming her fear of water, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas did applaud her efforts. "This was so amazing," Elizabeth wrote in the comments of Gina's post on Instagram.
